Release 07.09.00

Minor release, mobydick Video Telephony, SIP Provider Database, Published: 27.03.2015

Important information regarding this update:
1. From now on only lower case mobydick usernames are possible. Upon updating, all existing users will be automatically migrated. This will not have any affect on the client, as the client does not distinguish between names entered using upper case or lower case characters or even a mixture, meaning your users will not have to make any changes.
2. The update process will be changed with this version. After any update from version 7.09 onwards, a large proportion of the configurations will be automatically regenerated and Apache, xmpp server and fax server (not Asterisk however) will be restarted. Therefore, the update will require approx. 1 - 2 minutes more than previously, but will result in a more stable and consistent system. During this process, normal phone calls will not be lost. However, the client connection and if necessary video calls will be interrupted. Should you be operating with our integrated softphone, the process may have the unfortunate consequence of disconnecting calls.
3. With the 7.09.00 version a few previously standalone packets have been compiled together and integrated into md-cmd and now will no longer appear in the installed packages list. This affects:
* md-queuemetrics
* md-snom
* md-billing
* md-yealink
* md-patton
* md-berofix
* md-aastra
* md-connector
